Thanks for the super-quick response. This is only used for the built
tests, so I don't really see much value in having a shared library;
any space savings are probably obliterated by all the libtool files

I tried both quickly and they both seem to work, given that automake
generates the rules and dependencies correctly; it's just that it
looks/feels quite weird.
